[ecrea] Call for papers: Prospects and Challenges towards Developing a Digital Economy within the EU
Thu May 03 22:18:55 GMT 2018
11TH CMI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, 29-30 November 2018
Prospects and Challenges towards Developing a Digital Economy within the EU
Place: Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark
Organized by Center for Communication, Media and Information
technologies (CMI), Aalborg University Copenhagen, Denmark
In the EU, the creation of a digital economy and a Digital Single Market
are seen as drivers of future innovation, competitiveness and growth.
These ideas are enshrined in the EU 2020 strategy and are researched in
a number of projects, including the Baltic SEA Regional project, Digital
Innovation Network (DIGINNO). The project is aimed at promoting uptake
of ICT in the business sector, developing innovative digital public
services and facilitating Digital Single Market related policy
discussions on Baltic Sea Region level.
In addition to the digitization initiatives within the Baltic Sea
Region, different EU countries have embarked upon digitization policies,
technology and market initiatives aimed at creating digital economies.
These policies and initiatives are aimed at facilitating the uptake of
ICTs and digital technologies in the business sector and the
facilitation of digitized public service delivery. However, EU countries
are not at par in the development of these policies, technologies,
services, markets and other initiatives. This creates an opportunity for
a forum where different EU countries can exchange ideas on digitization
policy development and the facilitation of certain digitization initiatives.
This conference presents a forum for this opportunity. The conference is
organized in partnership with the DIGINNO project. At this conference,
the prospects and challenges towards digitization initiatives within the
EU will be discussed. These prospects and challenges will be discussed
within the policy, relevant technology, and infrastructure and market
context. The conference will enable the identification of best practices
and the sharing of ideas via paper presentation sessions. It will also
enable brainstorming on these issues via panel sessions.
Participants will come from academia, businesses, digitization networks
and government agencies. The participants of the conference will benefit
from speakers and participants within and outside Europe.
Papers are therefore invited in the following (not exclusive) topics:
Industry 4.0 and digital marketing
